REM Confirmation & Planned Order ReScheduling
I have an issue with production dates being changed upon confirmation in MFBF.
My planned orders scheduling parameters allow for my orders to be scheduled 1 day in the past.
All my planned order take 1 full day of scheduling.
This means that if I create a planned order for today May 13 at 10:02 AM, the planned order will still be scheduled to start at 00:00:00:
However, If I confirm 1 PC, and when the planned order is reduced the production dates of the planned order will shift to the time of the confirmation:
The planned order now ends on May 14, this creates confusion in MF50 as the planned order is now finishing tomorrow even though we still might be on time in terms of production.
Other annoying fact, the basic dates are not adjusted even if my config says to adjust them.
Is there a way for the confirmation to leave my scheduling to it's initial state ?

The following modification note should be helpfulp:
77806 - Scheduling type for goods receipt confirmation
The note long text provides the following information:
If you perform the goods receipt confirmation for planned orders in transaction MF40, the system reduces the capacity requirements for each operation and schedules the operation with the remaining quantity forwards.
After applying the program modification from this SAP Note, the system may not schedule the operations forwards but backwards, starting from the finish date of the operation.
